originally introduced in 2012, mathieu lehanneur has designed a more refined aluminum version of his ‘take time!’ watch for lexon. re-inventing the traditional timekeeping archetype, the compact accessory brings it up to speed with the digital era by conceiving a waterproof and versatile re-interpretation of the classic pocket watch. the compact chronograph ‘draws upon the psyche between a pocket-watch and the clock of professor calculus,‘ says lehanneur, ‘to once and for all get a better grip on time.’ featured in eight different colors and coated with an iridescent finish, ‘take time!’ nestles on the palm of the hand, slides onto your wrist or belt.

  • I saw Andre Fu’s work at the Upper House. We were there having a drink with our host in HK, and were shown a room. Have you seen one? Very maimiilnstic, Japanese, (with light coloured wood). Didn’t quite do it for me. Thought the bar was fantastic, especially on the crystal clear night we went, with the stunning view of the harbour and TST.
